In my searches for new, unannounced products* today I managed to find a listing for an item that includes 5 Force Link 2.0 figures. It is unknown if it is another playset or a simple figure multipack but it includes at least one exclusive figure – Holographic Maz Kanata, plus Rey (Island Journey), Kylo Ren, a First Order Stormtrooper and Finn. I will share more details such as price and availability when possible.

Another web search has turned up new information for wave 2 of the Force Link 2 assortment of Star Wars figures. It appears Qi’ra and Chewbacca will be carried forward from wave 1, plus new figure code named “Chronos*” , Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader Snoke (which we first revealed here) and Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) are added to the mix.
All info has been added to our 2018 Master List for easy reference.
*Chronos’ code name represents Moloch, per the reveal LEGO sets for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
